"Falling into Winter" by Lauren McBride

Falling into Winter    

Like powdered sugar
sprinkled on spice cakes -            
brown and russet leaves  
dusted in snowflakes.

--Lauren McBride

Poet's Notes: I love fall when I can fling open the windows and let in the cool crisp air instead of summer's inferno. Then I can use the oven without having the kitchen's accidental space heater overtax the air conditioner. And suddenly I feel the need to bake. Perhaps this is why spice cake came to mind to describe snow falling on autumn leaves.
